was very interesting to hear hillary clinton there put mali, algeria and al qaeda quickly in that same paragraph. linking those concepts. because the state department has been concerned as she has been in shing algeria to take a more active role in trying to control al qaeda. because they have been building out what is feared to be a command and control center. within northern mali. that is to say there are weapons coming from libya, through algeria, down into mali and there is a worry that this could become another afghanistan. >> rose: and for analysis of algeria and mali we turn to max boot, jennifer cook, and peter pham. >> the ramification of what happened in algeria and the strikegain the gas installation there and the hostages being taken there really opens this up and internationalizes it with a number of year mean citizens taking u.s. citizens and japanese as well. so the events of this last week, the french incursion, the islamists move south and the taking of the gas installation in algeria really puts a whole dramatic new spin on this and adds momentum to the whole problem.

situation on the ground. >> brown: even this afternoon, as secretary of state hillary clinton suggested, the situation in algeria remained confused. the focus was this natural gas compound in the sahara desert seen here in footage from last month. the vast, natural gas facility at in amenas is owned in part by b.p. and located just 60 miles from algeria's border with libya. islamists apparently led by this man-- mokhtar belmoktar-- attacked the plant yesterday, claiming they took 41 foreign hostages, including seven americans. early today, the algerian military stormed the sprawling site, as the militants were attempting to leave with the hostages. hours later, the country's communications minister told algerian radio, "an important number of hostages were freed and an important number of terrorists were neutralized and we regret the few dead and wounded, but we don't have numbers." u.s. officials said an american drone watched the operation from overhead, but the algerians refused u.s. military assistance. confusion reigned, the militants claimed 35 hostages died, while algerian state
is that of it continues to be an operation with very, very few details coming out from the algerians. secretary clinton was asked about that friday, and on the one hand the u.s. and other countries are very unhappy about the lack of information, but on the other hand they realize it's a very complex operation and that it appears to be continuing. erin? >> jill dougherty, thank you very much. of course, we do know there are some americans still unaccounted for tonight. we are also hearing the first words though from another american hostage who is safe and we want to get straight to our david mattingly in texas who has been following the other american hostages. david, what can you tell us about the american you have spoken to who is alive? >> reporter: erin, first of all, we can tell you his name. that's significant because it's the first time that we've been able to confirm a name of one of the americans who were at the plant at the time. his name is mark cobb. he's reportedly from texas. we weren't able to confirm that directly with him because we had a very brief exchange with him. cnn contacting hi
writer for president clinton and michael avlon. obviously that was a reference, a rather oblique one, to the gun control debate, but a reference it appeared to be. the fourth school shooting, though, in more than a month. nearly half the american people disapprove of what the president is doing on gun control. is it time now for less talk and more action from the president on gun control? >> well, you're right, that in that powerful speech yesterday, he used the words and the sentiments of the founders to argue for his agenda and one of the elements obliquely, though not explicitly, was gun control. now, he took the first step with those 19 executive actions, but the next step of course is in the hands of congress, where the nra has been one of the most powerful forces for years and years and years. the really interesting question is this. this horrible shooting today following on those other horrible shootings, of course we've had these before, but since newtown, perhaps things have tipped. now the media is paying attention. every time it's a new bit of information about why we need
